This is BIG BROTHER's best delivery in households on any night since Sept. 15, 2009 (BIG BROTHER 11 finale) and its largest audience in viewers since April 13, 2008 (BIG BROTHER 9).

Compared to the same night last year, BIG BROTHER THURSDAY was up +9% in adults 18-34 (from 2.2/08), even in adults 18-49 and added +380,000 viewers (from 7.80m, +5%). BIG BROTHER THURSDAY was the night's top program in households, viewers, adults 25-54, adults 18-49 and adults 18-34.
